Department of Atomic Energy,

CSM Marg, Mumbai 400 001


Sub: Implementation of Part B of CCS Revised Pay Rules – Parity with pay structure of Technical Staff of Department of Space – Reg.




          At the out set on behalf of the entire work force of DAE, NFAEE extend their hear – felt gratitude to you for the continuous effort put yourself and the Additional Secretary for getting approval of Cadre Review for the administrative, accounts, Auxiliary, Purchase & Store staff which was pending for long time and for the introduction of Performance Related Incentive Scheme (PRIS) for DAE Employees.


          We would like to recall that during the meeting held on 11th February 2009 the assurance on above mentioned two issues was given and in time all efforts were taken by the DAE authorities and we got the result.


In the meeting held on 11th February 2009, the subject mentioned above also discussed in detail and in the course of discussion you assured that if the pay structure of Scientific & Technical Staff of our Department is inferior than that of Department of Space (DOS), DAE will take measures to rectify and asked the Federation to submit a note by considering all the facts about the recruitment norms, promotion norms, etc.


          Accordingly, NFAEE worked out a proposal based on the information and documents available with us. Even today the Department is considering the recruitment/promotions norms are confidential and hence we could not go through all documentary evidence available on the subject. There is no need to mention the difficulties to get factual positions to gather information from other Department, when our own department itself hesitates to spare all information. Even then we tried to do justice at our level and the data is prepared accordingly. We also would like to assure you that we are ready to accept the any corrections/alterations in our inputs based on the factual information from the Department.


          We prepared a chart and placed it as Annexure along with this note indicates the pay of technical staff who joined in the respective department years back and got the revision in pay as per the promotion norms existing in the department concern as well as the pay structure adopted by the Departments as & when the pay were revised by the Government of India.   In the note in brief dealt with the discrepancies, losses in pay at various stages for senior employees as well as the new recruits, etc and the discrepancies aroused after the changes in the norms for promotion adopted by the Trombay Council after the implementation of Sixth Central Pay Commission report in the Department.


          From the enclosed note it can be establish that the Pay structure existing for Technical Staff of DAE is inferior to that of DOS. It is pertinent to note here that the chart was prepared by considering all promotional benefits as outstanding as mentioned in the notified norms, where as the factual position in DAE is that more 80% of the employees are considering for their promotion as normal case. If we consider the career progression as normal case the pay structure of DAE employees shall be further in inferior in comparison with DOS employees. To confirm the factual position in respect to the carrier progression in out standing or normal case, it is very much necessary to go through the records available with the Department. Following are our observation:


·         In the Department of Space (DOS) a Technician who joined in the Grade of Technician A during 3rd Central Pay Commission (CPC) in the Pay scale of 260 – 06 – 326 – EB – 08 – 350 will reach in the Pre revised Pay scale of Rs10000 – 325 -15200 after completion of 27 years and thus he/she will get Grade Pay of Rs6600 as on 01.01.2006 while implementing the recommendations of Sixth Central Pay Commission (SCPC).


·         Where as in DAE a Technician who joined in the grade of Tradesman B in the Pay scale of 320 – 06 – 326 – 08 – 390 – EB – 10 – 400 during the 3rd CPC will reach only in the pre revised Pay scale of Rs8000 – 275 – 12000 after completion of 27 years of service and thus he/she will get the Grade Pay of Rs5400 only on 01.01.2006 while implementing the recommendations of SCPC.


·         The same person of DAE has to wait SIX more years to reach in the Grade Pay of Rs6600 by the time the technical staff in DOS will move to the next higher grade having the Grade pay of 7600. In short a person who joined in DAE in the higher grade will take 33 years to reach the Grade having the Grade Pay of Rs6000 where as a technician who joined in the lower grade will reach the grade having the Grade Pay of Rs6600 within 27 years.


·         The recent changes introduced by Trombay Council in the promotion norms for technical staff added more discrepancies in comparison with the Pay Structure of Technical staff of DOS as it need more years to reach the employees at various levels corresponding to their grade.



Residency period for promotion

(post designated based on the Grade Pay)


2800 - 4200

4200- 4600

4600 – 4800

4800 - 5400

5400 – 6600



3 yrs

3 yrs

5 yrs

5 yrs

5 yrs



5 yrs

4 yrs

5 yrs

5 yrs

6 yrs


From the above it can be seen that a Technician of DOS in the Grade having the Grade Pay of Rs2800 will reach in the grade having the Grade Pay of Rs6600 after putting a service of 21 years whereas a Technician of same grade will take 25 years to reach in the grade having the Grade Pay of Rs6600.


Prior to the revision, to get 5 promotions in DOS it took 21 years and will reach in the pre revised pay scale of Rs10000 – 325 – 15200 where as in DAE for getting 5 promotions it took 21 years and reaches in the pre revised pay of Rs8000 – 275 – 12000 and to reach in the pre revised pay scale of 10000 – 325 – 15200 it too 27 years.


·         Further discrepancies added in the revised promotion norms by re-designating the existing Tradesman E as Technician F1 as the juniors will supercede the seniors after getting the promotion. As per the revised norms Now Technician D (the then Tradesman D) will reach in the grade of Technician F after 6 years whereas who got promotion as Technician E (the then Tradesman E) will reach into Technician F after completion of 8 years of service from Tradesman D.


·         Similar discrepancies are existing in the case of Scientific Assistants also which is established in the Chart VI & VIII.


From the above it is crystal clear that the Pay structure extended to the Technical Staff of DAE employees is inferior to that of Department of Space (DOS), in the pre revised pay as well as based on the revised norms.


          It is therefore request you to give necessary instructions to the officers concerned to take all appropriate steps to rectify the discrepancies and to ensure justice to the employees of this prestigious department while considering the demand on Parity with the pay structure of the employees of DOS.


          In this connection we would like to present in person to the above mentioned facts with more illustrations and detailed explanation for which we request you to give us an early appointment.

          Thanking you. 

Yours faithfully,




Secretary General
